I believe so, but I will work with some users to verify this.

I think we're here already.

The support link you posted above gives firmware version 4.8.200 for our
adapters (ibv_devinfo output posted below).

However, we're at 4.8.917 across all adapters.
gives the only info we can seem to find on that firmware version.

I believe the OFED 1.2 release came with this firmware file and update
tools for the HCA. Some of the nodes that were shipped to us came with
this firmware version onboard from the factory, so we updated the other
nodes to match.

For what it's worth, we saw these errors before and after the firmware
